    It is not the most consistently excellent genre.

    If you mean Roentgen's Violin Concerto No. 1 in A Minor (1902) I agree! It's an effective Brahms-influenced symphonic concerto with many original touches, including a poke at Wagner's Magic Fire Music. Roentgen's Ballade for Violin and Orchestra (1918) and Violin Concerto No. 3 in F# (1931) are very good, but to me No. 1 is the most inspired.

    Yes, the A minor. Fabulous piece!
